    Folks – Bad news. As many of you know Neil has been very ill for over 10 days. He was moved to a hospital this past Saturday. He was on life support up until yesterday.
    Yesterday he received the Last Rites of the Church. Neil is comatose. A committee of 6 of us together with the hospital authorities agreed that a Mandate Neil had drawn up should be enforced, that is, any life support system should be disconnected if his situation continued to deteriorate. Catharine is not living at home. She is taking everything in hand in good form. No one is answering the phones. Much work must be done by her support group. Neil is a very popular person. I am sending this message to you as blogmates on my own volition. If anyone would like to send a message, on this blog, to Neil, please feel free to do so. I will pass them on. More information will be published in the Gazette at a later date. I will let you know as soon as possible any additional information as it transpires. I hope I haven’t overstepped any bounds. God Bless.

  10. Thanks Jim, sad news indeed. This will leave a large void, Neil is much loved and respected, as is his wife Catherine.

    Please do extend my prayers and regards…

    Dearest Jim,
    I am so grateful for the news about Neil. It closes a chapter in my life when I listened to his talk show in the 80’s and was better informed and entertained for hours. Imagine my delight when I discovered his Blog on line and joined in.
    He will be missed but he’s not missing-he’ll be with his heavenly Father.
    Best regards to all,

    I am very sorry to hear this also. My prayers are with Neil and Catherine. Neil was such a blessing to me when he had his radio show Exchange with Neil McKenty.
    My life was enriched by him. And Catherine is a real lady.
    Thank you, Jim for the information.
